IDC: New Zealand scores highly in ICT sustainability

Achieves tier two rating.

New Zealand has achieved a score of 21 on IDC’s ICT Sustainability Index. This positions it as a tier two country, joint third overall behind Japan (16) and USA (20) and alongside Brazil, France, Germany and UK.

The ranking is an indicator of how well a country has the capability to integrate ICT into its economy to manage and reduce carbon emissions. Australia was ranked as a tier four nation with a score of 33.

The study examined the potential of 17 known technologies to reduce CO2 emissions in four major economic sectors including energy generation and distribution, transport, industry and building.

"New Zealand scored very high on its ability to sustain an environmentally aware economy within a 'balanced' emissions envelope," says IDC's enterprise infrastructure, consumer and telecom research senior vice president Vernon Turner,

"New Zealand's ICT profile - capable of implementing a sustainable CO2 reduction strategy - has similar traits to the United States although more investment in Telecom and network services could further improve New Zealand's Sustainability Index ranking."
